ART THERAPY FOR SENIORS WITH ALZHEIMER’S
eniors facing early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s usually suffer from boredom, powerlessness, and loneliness. Therefore, art activities for seniors with Alzheimer’s should aim at improving their quality of life in the years they struggle with this disease. Art therapists working with this population focus on strengthening the remaining cognitive and physical abilities of elderlies instead of attempting to make changes or increase their mental and functional abilities. In this process, nonverbal communication through art making, making simple choices, and releasing emotions bring about a sense of pride and dignity; a feeling that Alzheimer’s disease gradually takes away.
